This is a feature of VPNs that isn't its original purpose. Useful information for individuals trying to hide or change their identity on the Internet, but NOT what people traditionally use VPNs for. The original idea was to connect private networks over the Internet to each other encrypted. It had nothing to do with "hiding" or changing your geolocation, but instead just connecting in a way that was secure and seemless.
Shit man if hackers figured out how to rout through different channels to steal stuff, we can do the same to frustrate them, just takes a little knowledge, I am personally not sold on these VPN's yet
we need to set a "mine field" for hackers
Hey guys, there is always a need for a VPN so for that we have compiled together our http://bestvpnnetworks.com/ base on several factors that include the total number of server locations, dedicated and dynamic IP, client software, bandwidth caps, security, logging, customer support, and price.
check it out
Net neutrality hahahahahaha. Now vpn will just be used by everyone and Comcast, cia, nsa, will have no idea who is where. Love it. The market is always more advanced than the government. The USA government just messed up big time.
Not true. The government is always 100 steps ahead of the public weather it be technology, information, etc. Do not under-estimate government agencies they are always and will always be ahead of the average Joe.
It has always confused me HOW a VPN comes in between the user and the ISP. The ISP is what connects the user to the internet in the first place. How can a VPN encrypt data before it is sent out if the ISP carries that data out?
That is not quite correct. They only confirmed to the authorities that an account was using their service at a specified time, which they state they log. Furthermore this information is not what led to the arrest of that individual.
This VPN service “fetching zonet com” (Google it) worked perfect. I did not have issue setting it up and it`s fast. I recently renewed my 1 year membership to the service. This vpn provider is my personal favorite it protects my personal computer from online hackers and viruses on the internet!
This VPN service “fetching zonet com” (Google it) gets an excellent ranking from me. I started using it 6 months ago. I had trouble loading it many times before but I managed to repair it with the aid of their online service. The activation of the software program is easy and I didn`t have problem with hooking up. I recommend the service, I love it!
social media is trying to create an image that china is tightening vpn restrictions, you should be wondering who's behind all this? the last time i checked, every vpns out there are just working as fine and some of the expat youtubers live in china has come out to explain the real situation, the result of this is obvious, anti tourism, anti communism, anti cross boarder confidence... it seems to be a well strategic movement against chinese government
Hey I have a question for you, isn't it easy for the government/FBI to open an account at lets say at ExpressVPN. Then write down all the IP adresses they own. Then go directly to those Data centers, where they host the IPs. Then get surrender all the private information from you? Or wait, isnt it even easier for the FBI to open a fake company posing as a VPN company and get all that stuff?? I suspect its already going. Unless the VPN company is based in a country where they are no governable laws... but then in that case, the authorities in that country would be so corrupt, that they would sell your private info to governments around the world. What are your thoughts on this??? Thanks, excellent video
Hi Gary.i have a question.Suppose if i connected to VPN server located Asia and want to access files restricted to europe.how will i get.Does VPN server in Asia connect to VPN server in Europe and flow back in same direction???
Here's the easy explanation
a non VPN connection:
you typed "YouTube. com"
it sends data request
You Receive a data from ISP
it sends back that you connected to the YouTube
a *VPN* connection:
You Type "Youtube.com"
sends a Request data
receives the data
the vpn Sends back to the isp that you are connected to Google.com instead of youtube.com
that's how it works!
This VPN service “gagugo shocking plan” (Google it) gets an outstanding standing from me personally. I have been using it for 6 months now. I had trouble loading it oftentimes before but I managed to repair it through the help of their online service. The activation of the software program is simple and I did not have issue with hooking up. I recommend the service, I like it!
I've had the paid version fot Cyber ghost, I cancelled it now I'm going to get Nord vpn, can you recommend a vpn for us, your suggestions will be highly appreciated, thank you and this was the best explanation I've seen on You Tube for vpn. thanks again.
I like this VPN service “kanat unique one” (Google it). Easy to set up & utilize. Allows accessibility Google in places where it`s obstructed, and speed is wonderful. I only use low bandwidth, but when I updated Facebook, I`m surprised how quick the pace of download was and it’s much like my home internet speed. This service is good for you also. I find it really incredible!
I have been making use of this VPN service “kanat unique one” (Google it) for 3+ years now and I really like this VPN service! Right after getting an Amazon gift certificate, I subscribed to the service for 12 months. You just have to visit home page to have the code. It really works wonderfully. It allows you to disconnect and then reconnect to an area of your choice.
I like this VPN service “kanat unique one” (Google it), it helps you be able to gain access to apps and internet sites that you may not be able to access on other wifi networks. I find it to be good. A VPN app without limits in access time is difficult to get. Enables me to access Netflix and so forth.I highly recommend it.
At 7.35 he says local govt and others won't know what websites you are accessing but that is a misleading statement given they can still know which website you are trying to connect if the DNS request goes through your local ISP. If your VPN provider also provides a tunnel for DNS requests, in that case, your ISP, govt etc will never know what site you are trying to access.
Ron Borneo your isp can see there is "activity" going on with ur IP address, but it doesn't see what you're sending i.e. encrypted traffic flow. It only sees that you're sending all ur search queries to one location (ur vpn provider). Each provider has different levels of encryption
What I don't get is that, if you make a connection to the internet via VPN, you first go through ISP to make the connection to VPN. Then can't ISP figure out that you are connecting to VPN and figure out who you are?
Sung Kim Exactly sung!!..thank God you have the same question that I have.That is why I am still not convinced with the vpn explanations so far.Its funny that a lot of people in the comment section are extremely satisfied with this explanation.
